The Key to Prosperity

Last month, David and I spent 10 days in Israel. It was amazing!

David and I enjoyed the sunrise over the Dead Sea.

Now, when I read my Bible, I understand so much more because I saw what they were talking about. I “Read Today” about towers.

2 Chronicles 26:5, “He continued to seek God in the days of Zechariah, who had understanding through the vision of God; and as long as he sought the Lord, God prospered him.”

NEW AMERICAN STANDARD BIBLE

********
God prospered Uzziah as long as he sought Him. What did he do with the money?

  1. He built and restored, 26:2.
  2. He built new cities, 26:6.
  3. He fortified the walls and built towers in Jerusalem, 26:9.
  4. He built towers to protect his livestock, 26:10.
  5. He dug many cisterns to water his livestock, 26:10.
  6. He supplied his army with armaments, 26:14.
  7. He created new engines of war, 26:15.

But when he became strong, his heart became proud and he acted corruptly. He was unfaithful to God, 2 Chronicles 26:16. He thought he could do whatever he wanted. He decided to be the leader of the church. He tried to burn incense in the sanctuary. Only the priest is allowed to burn incense, 26:16-18.

He raged at the priests and leprosy broke out on his forehead, 26:19, 20. He died a leper and was buried in the field next to the grave of the kings, 26:21-23.

When God sends a monetary blessing, I am to build, restore, or fortify!
